A Brief History of Gun Control

Kentucky Long Rifle

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.


China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million ‘educated’ people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.


So it might be said that guns don’t kill people, gun control does!

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.

The results are now in: Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent. Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns! While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won’t see this data on the American evening news or hear our president, governors or other politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans … before it’s too late! The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are ‘subjects’.

We here in America have the second amendment; “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Gun control, for our safety and the safety of the children, is the cry of those that would forfeit our God given right to self-defense!

Remember the 56 million who died for lack of guns to defend themselves.

If you value your freedom, Please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends and acquaintances.

    I understand from Australian friends of mine that they are clamoring for their guns back. So much so that many who were in favor of gun control have changed their mind. Only a total change of government will bring the guns back.

    This is why the “founders” of this USA wrote and passed our Bill of Rights, Constitution.
    To protect us from the likes of King Obama!!!

    • BobF says:

      What concerns me is that nine lawyers in black robes can strip us of our Constitutional Rights with one ruling. When that happens, the excrement is going to hit the overhead air recirculating device in this country.

  3. Right Handed Cowboy says:

    I do hope and pray its not to late! Obama is on a mission to disarm Americans and destroy what is left of this nation.

    Please allow me my two bits worth on the effects of gun control in Australia.

    I was a cop during the hysterical gun buyback program initiated after the Port Arthur massacre of 1996. Very few of the firearms handed over to me were the automatic or semi-automatic high powered long arms that the feds were trying to get hold of. Most were air-rifles, .22 autos or semi-autos or antique type weaponry, such as muskets and old colt .45’s etc . So I guess you get the picture. Now I’m not saying I took all those 640 thousand that were handed in so can’t vouch for what other cops had destroyed, but it is my experience that suggests to me that many of those high powered autos and semi-auto longarms and handguns are still out there being hung onto by people who value their own lives more than the government does.

    Also, every state has its own laws regarding the procurement of firearms. My home state, New South Wales, requires that anyone who wishes to obtain a firearm license have a criminal background check (guilty until proven innocent) before firearms - which are limited to any bolt action longarm or semi-auto or revolver type handgun - can be purchased.

    All firearms must be kept in a safe or strong cabinet, which is generally described as being thief proof which is also subject to police inspection. (police state)

    Any longarm possessor must attend a shooting range at least six times per year and shoot off an amount of ammo. Those who choose handguns must attend a pistol club at least 12 times per year and shoot off an amount of ammo.

    All firearms must be registered. I also note that since gun registration came into force the number of firearms being stolen from private residences being subject to break and enters, has sky rocketed. I note too, that private security firms have had a large number of their handguns, usually S&W .38 stolen in break and enters which have been used in hold ups and other armed robbery offences.

    So the astute observer would soon realize that gun registration does not work because someone or some people working in gun registration are alerting criminals to where law abiding people keep their guns! Yet the idiot politicians do nothing to address that problem!

    It is also my opinion that there will be another massacre by some nutter or jihadi wanting his 72 virgins, but only time will tell when that occurs. And talking of jihadis, I became aware in 2003 that several outlying properties in western New South Wales were playing host to Muslims from Sydney, and of the Lebanese variety, who were shooting up the countryside with 7.62mm short (AK47 type rounds) while the feds were telling everyone of what a great program the gun buyback had turned out to be!

    Keep your powder dry and your eyes peeled!

    There is no foundational document like the US Constitution and its Bill of Rights.

    We will be asked, shortly, if we wish to hold our Constitution. Because there are those who will wish to see it shredded.

    Every time I think about what obama is going to try in taking our guns, I get a deep and sick feeling in my gut. I do NOT want to shoot some poor law enforcement officer who “is only following orders”, but I will NOT give up my gun. I do not want to die, but some things are more important. The govt can NOT arrest everyone nor can they shoot every person that refuses to give up his guns. If obama and friends think the killing in schools is horrible, then they are NOT going to like the bloodshed that will surely ensue if they try to disarm America.

    As history has shown, disarming of its citizens is ALWAYS the first step in a tyrannical takeover by a dictator. If a law is passed, especially by executive order (KING’S DECREE), then hopefully ALL Americans will come to realize obama’s true intentions and quit giving him the benefit of the doubt. Of course, by then, it will be too late.

    I truly hope that civil war is not the end result. That bloodshed on a massive scale will not happen. But of course, I bet no one in 1935 could believe what the next 10 years would bring to the world. Modern America is NOT immune to the lessons of history. We have all read of the horrible wars and how millions of men, women and children were needlessly killed for the sake of tyranny. It CAN happen even today and even so in America. This very real possibility is NOT some Hollywood movie, but a very real and sobering reality.

    I dearly hope that we can get through the next few years and elect new politicians that, good or bad, at least love this country and believe in its founding principles. I will not rest easy until this happens.

    At this point, I find myself truly hating anyone that voted for obama. I mean deep down despising. They have shown themselves to be truly ignorant or hateful of American values. That is the only two reasons anyone would have voted for obama. And because of these morons, America may very well be in the last fight for its existence as we know it. I really hope I am simply a paranoid idiot and all we be fine with the world. That I am simply going through a psychosis because my guy didn’t win the election. But, if I go with my gut, I have good reason for my concern. For now, I will expect the worst, be prepared, and be pleasantly surprised if all goes well.

      “Only following orders” is what is known as a “Nuremberg Defense” friend. It could also be a very serious crime called treason. That is why there are organizations such as The Oath Keepers, and Threepers.

    Well said. You summed it all perfectly. Lesson should be learned.
